Apart from the high end hotels, there is very little where to relax and feel kind of homy, European way. It had a right mix of Western sanity and Bhutanese flavor (i.e. Yak ribs, yum-yum). Good free wifi. If you are in Thimphu for couple of days, don't bother visiting, sample Ema Datsi and Momos somewhere else. If you have... More

My daughter loved it so much that we ate there everyday during our stay in Thimphu. Their Sub and Pizza were Amazing. So was the Pita. We enjoyed our breakfast sitting out on the deck, do try it out anytime during the day- as it will be impossible to sit there in the cold night!

This must be the only place in the world I have had a yak burger! Honestly, other than the novelty of the idea, the burger itself did not taste an different from beef burgers I've had at other places, so I am not even sure if I really had a yak burger, or if they were just having one on... More

Go here for the burgers and sandwiches as well as for drinks and coffee. Expensive but given that such options are rare, its understandable. Milk shakes are waste of money until thats what the kids want.

Good food, Good Ambience, Cheap Alchohol. Chicken Burger is delicious, Pizza not so much. Outside seating is also available.

We liked the Zone a lot. Owner and staff are really friendly and make you feel at home. I have no idea if the beer is overpriced (nothing in Bhutan costs that much anyway) and it was great to get away from the endless buffets in soul-less hotels. We had yak burgers, fries and onion rings (had to be done,... More

Our guide considered this a "special treat" for us as we had been in Bhutan for almost a week. If you've visited Bhutan, you know all the food is basically the same, so to go into a restaurant and be able to order pizzas, burgers, French fries, milk shakes, etc., can be a real treat.

We decided to try this western restaurant after yet another really bad local meal. The reviews are overwhelming positive and the restaurant is really well known but... this place is not very good. The reason i have given The Zone a 3 instead of a 2 is because the service was good, the drinks were fine and the ambience was... More
